HarperOne, Ekim 2013. World English

 Batı Virginia'nın kırsal bir kasabasına çocuklarımla beraber yaşamak için yerleştiğimizde soğuk bir geç sonbahar günüydü. Çiftlik evi yüz yaşındaydı, yerler karla kaplıydı ve evin ısı yalıtımı berbattı- zeminden bile, soğuğu hemen kapıyordunuz. O zamanlar on iki yaşında olan  oğlum kapıya doğru yürüdü ve dedi ki, 'Bu derme çatma küçücük eve biz ölelim diye getirdin.'

Böylece  eski aşk romanları yazarı Suzanne McMinn'in Batı Virginia'daki en berbat yollarından birinde başlayan vahşi yolculuğu, çocukları, gizemli ortağı ve kırsal mahalledeki ilginç komşuları ve bir çiftlik hayvanlarıyla kendi kendine sürdürebilir ilginç  bir yaşam biçimine dönüşür.

Suzanne McMinn’in CHICKENS IN THE ROAD!'una gelen övgüler;

McMinn] found her road to self-realization much rockier than she imagined, but ultimately very satisfying…in her heart-on-her-sleeve, nutty narrative, she had to face the necessity for her own self-sufficiency…In this enjoyable memoir, she learned by trial and error how to do everything from scratch.” – Publishers Weekly

McMinn here provides a lively, whimsical account of her adventures in West Virginia farm living…A memoir of a suburban mother's move to the country, this book is perfect for fans of McMinn's blog.” –Library Journal

Writing with the keen attention to detail of the seasoned author she is…Her honesty is matched only by her desire to both take full responsibility for her failures and share the glow of her successes. The recipes and craft how-to's provided at the end of the book open the door for all readers, experienced or green, to get a little taste of country life.” – Booklist

A mature woman’s heartbreaking, heroic, and hilarious coming of age story. To McMinn, life is a bold adventure, but only if you live it. And, boy, does she ever!” – Susan Elizabeth Phillips New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Great Escape)

Humorous and inspirational...a page-turning pep talk for anyone who’s ever wanted to quit their day job and do something different with their life. McMinn’s tale will leave you eager to leap, and build your wings on the way down, too.” – Susan McCorkindale, Author,Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl and 500 Acres and No Place to Hide, More Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl

Austen Ivereigh: Papa Francis

Henry Holt yayınevinden Steve Rubin, ünlü Katolik yorumcusu ve İngiliz Gazeteci  Austen Ivereigh'in kaleme aldığı ve önümüzdeki yıl tamamlanacak bir Papa Francis biyografisinin dünya haklarını satın aldı

Henry Holt yayınevinin başkanı ve yayıncısı Stephen Rubin gelecek yıl  bir Papa Francis  biyografisi yayınlayacaklarını duyurdu( 9 Ekim 2013'te). Katolik yorumcusu ünlü İngiliz gazeteci  Austen Ivereigh,  tarafından henüz yazım aşamasında olan  papayla ilgili biyografik bu kitap, diğerleri ötesinde, Katolik Kiliselerinde papanın  "reset tuşuna" nasıl bastığı    ve dünyadaki milyonlarca Katolikle ilişkileri konusunda ilk kez tam ölçekli bir biyografi olacak . Kıdemli editör Serena Jones bu kitabın editörü olacak.Eserin İtalyanca yayın hakları satıldı. 

NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2013 – Henry Holt will publish a biography of Pope Francis next year, it was announced today by Stephen Rubin, Holt’s president and publisher. The untitled book by British journalist Austen Ivereigh, a co-founder and director of the international media project Catholic Voices, will be the first full-scale biography detailing how this pope, beyond all others, has hit the “reset button” on the Catholic Church and its engagement with the world and its billion followers. Senior editor Serena Jones will edit the book.

“This groundbreaking biography of Pope Francis will be an authoritative guide to an apparently unscripted papacy and answer the essential question for the world: Who is he?” Rubin said. “Austen Ivereigh is the best-suited journalist to tell the story of the Pope’s path from the streets of Buenos Aires to the Vatican, and his well-laid plan to change and update the church,”

Based on extensive interviews in Argentina and years of study of the Catholic Church, the biography will tell the story of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a remarkable man whose background and total commitment to the discernment of God’s will transformed him into Pope Francis, the most revolutionary pope of the modern era. Ivereigh will investigate Francis’s youth growing up in Buenos Aires and the dramatic events during the Perón era that shaped his beliefs; his ongoing conflicts and disillusionment with the ensuing doctrines of an authoritarian and militaristic government in the 70s; how his Jesuit training in Argentina and Chile gave him a unique understanding and prophetic advocacy for a “Church of the Poor”; and his rise from Cardinal to the papacy. Ivereigh believes these fundamental elements created a far more innovative and prophetic leader than the world has yet to recognize.

With the Francis Revolution just beginning, this biography will shed new light on how one man’s ambitious program will use the power of his position to challenge and change one of the world’s most formidable religions, forever.

Rubin acquired world rights from agent Bill Barry on an exclusive submission.

Absent By Katie Williams

Being dead isn’t all bad…at least she has the company of Evan and Brooke, who are stuck in the same predicament. Upon learning the kids at school think her death was suicide, Paige vows to set the record straight. She discovers the ability to embody her living classmates, and realizes maybe she's misunderstood them as much as they've misunderstood her. Until something goes horribly wrong. Apparently Paige isn’t the only one inhabiting the living. And there may be more to the mystery of her death than she ever imagined.

10. yıldönümünü kutlanıyor...

yazarın fanları ve medyadan notları sizlerle aşağıdaki mailde paylaşmaktan memnunum. 

Lynsay Sands’ One Lucky Vampire

Lynsay did a guest post about her favorite Argeneaus on USA Today’s HEA Blog:

“Playing favorites has never been my thing, but if push comes to shove then my favorite stories have always been the ones with the most humor in them. It's why I started writing in the first place. Years ago I was feeling pretty depressed after my mother died, but I couldn't for the life of me find anything funny to read. I got so frustrated that I starting writing my own story. I laughed throughout the entire story, and I've been writing ever since!”

On 10/2, Lynsay Sands will be featured on RT.com’s “Wayback Wednesday” series, discussing the inception of Argeneau series & her first RT convention experience

A guest post about the 10-year anniversary on Fresh Fiction:
“Honestly I'm shocked that the Argeneau series started a decade ago...I guess my overriding feeling about this anniversary is gratitude. I am thankful that my kids (Argeneau characters) are still being enjoyed 10 years later. I love this family because bits and pieces of it are made up of parts of my own family so how could I not be happy that others are enjoying them as well?”
Rave Reviews for One Lucky Vampire:

 “Ms. Sands really knows her characters and how to write them…I recommend this book whether your fans of Ms. Sands…or just like a good romance, this book can be read as a standalone. ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE is a good read and you won't be disappointed.” – Fresh Fiction

“After reading this one…it made me want to re read the whole series…I found One Lucky Vampire to be…quite enchanting…A fun and witty vampire romance that is full of endearing characters, thrilling plot, and enough sensuality to fog your windows!!” - Addicted to Romance

The latest in Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series is a wonderfully entertaining sexy story…I highly recommend this to all of you paranormal romance lovers out there.” - Harlequin Junkie

“The Argeneau Family series has nearly 20 books under its belt now, and it is just as passionate, funny and mysterious as ever. The protagonists have great chemistry from the start and the not-so bad guy is just bad enough, giving an opening for a little white knight angle. Sands does a fine job of bringing back established characters and once again provides readers with exactly what they are looking for.” – Romantic Times Magazine, 4 star review

“Lynsay writes sweet steamy romance.  It's completely sexy but not at all raunchy…This is a great book in the series and very enjoyable.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the series and with in the series this is a MUST READ! Even though the story is about one lucky guy, we are all lucky to have this entertaining series to read!” – Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust Blog

One Lucky Vampire is a wonderfully rousing story that was a pleasure to read…This is an amusing, sweet and well told story with a very spicy heat level sure to please readers who enjoy a newbie’s reaction to the discoveries of the joys of ‘shared sex’ between lifemates. The author knows how to make a reader giggle even while the main characters are in the throes of passion. Genius.” – Long and Short Reviews

“There are very few authors whose books that I enjoy so much, that as soon I finish one book, I’m searching for the next to place on my “anxiously awaiting” list. Lynsay Sands is on this short list!” – Window Seat on a Rainy Day Blog

Like all Argeneau books this book is packed full of sexy vampires, hot romance and humor.  That is one of my favorite things about these books is that that make me laugh out loud when I am reading them.  They definitely entertain me and I can’t ask for more…Overall, this was another great book in the Argeneau series” – Everybody Needs a Little Romance Blog
Longtime fans will welcome this latest installment and I believe there's enough recap to bring newcomers up to speed so they too can enjoy it.” – Paranormal Haven Blog
“Lynsay Sands never ceases to amaze me!  Nineteen books into the Argeneau series and she is still going strong…As long as Lynsay keeps weaving these wonderful tales I remain One Lucky Reader!  The passion, heat and romance drips from the pages but I keep coming back because of the great characters, stories and the general concept.  Looking forward to book number twenty and hoping there will be twenty more after that.  This is a must read, must buy and always pre-order series and a guilty pleasure that I will always love and treasure.” – Amberkatze's Book Blog

“Beautifully written with characters that are easy to get to know, yet still hold some surprises…Sure to please fans of the series, there was clever action, a few twists, some danger and some very sensual to steamy scenes.” – The Jeep Diva Blog

I’ve been a fan of this series from book one, One Quick Bite, and anxiously await each new installment. When One Lucky Vampire hit my inbox I couldn’t wait to read it…Over all it’s a great addition to one of my favorite series.” – The Book Reading Gals

Christian Notte's story, the sixteenth book in the Argeneau series is set on an island paradise called St. Lucia. After a bad relationship and an even worse divorce, Carolyn decides to go on a long overdue and much needed vacation with the 'girls'. Only the rest of the vacationers didn't get the memo. Around every corner there seems to be another couple celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary and the few single men she does see are far too young to even consider, including an irresistibly attractive rock violinist she meets. It's really too bad he's so young but in the end it doesn't matter because according to his cousin, Giacinta, women in general aren't Christian's type. But there's a catch, Christian needs Carolyn's help. He needs her to be his beard (to play the part of his fake girlfriend) for the week to appease his 'machismo' family. Carolyn just can't seem to say No and decides to help Gia's cousin. The only problem is that being around Christian and acting like they are a loving couple is wreaking havoc on her emotions. Carolyn's thoughts keep drifting back to places they shouldn't, like kissing his full lips or feeling his broad shoulders under her fingertips... good lord, she's in trouble.

Avelyn is the pride of her parents—lovely, intelligent, sweet tempered, skilled in all pursuits expected of a great lady in eleventh-century England. Unfortunately, her nasty cousins have taunted her so unceasingly for so many years that she feels ugly, fat, and undesirable. A series of humiliating incidents have also convinced her new husband Paen de Gerville that she is not only frail but accident-prone, and the comical misunderstandings that result lead to more unhappiness for Avelyn. But soon her natural optimism overcomes her feelings of inadequacy, allowing her to take control and succeed as chatelaine of Rumsfeld in spite of the mishaps that continue to plague her.

“Sands has cleverly woven a suspenseful subplot into this medieval coming-of-age romance, and her characters—including two sets of overanxious but loving parents, a clumsy squire-in-training, and a pet piglet—delight, while her trademark humor and vivid settings enthrall the reader.” – Booklist

He must find a wife, a woman to bear him sons and heed his commands. He has no need for beauty or grace, but one taste of his lovely bride's sweet lips and the sultry feel of her skin arouse an untamed passion. Perhaps there's more to marriage than he thought.

Until the real earl appears.  Richard Fairgrave had every intention of confronting his villainous twin who robbed him of his name and title...only to discover that he'd died.  Quietly assuming his identity, Richard must now deal with a maddening desire for his ravishing inherited "wife"-certainly a gold digger and possibly a murderess.  And Christiana must deal with an unwanted new "husband"...and they both must figure out what to do before the ice melts!

She never expected to marry…
Annabel was about to take the veil to become a nun when her mother suddenly arrives at the Abbey to take her home…so that she can marry the Scottish laird who is betrothed to her runaway sister! She knows nothing about being a wife, nothing about how to run a household, and definitely nothing about the marriage bed.
He never expected to fall in love . . .
From the moment Ross MacKay sets eyes on Annabel, he is taken with his shy sweet bride…and the fact that she's blessed with lush curves only makes him utter his own prayers of thanks. But when an enemy endangers her life, he'll move the Highlands themselves to save her. For though Annabel's not the bride he planned for, she's the only woman he desires.

"With humor, wit and compassion, Sands spins the touching tale of a lonely outsider who is rescued from the jaws of a bleak future… Watching Ross and his clan fall in love with Annabel is touching, and Ross' prowess at maneuvering the church's "bedding laws" and Annabel's entrenched religious obedience are highly amusing.
